He did Lefty but I was leaning more to set piece major battles , And I agree the AoP fought very hard and were on the offensive which incurs larger casualties but ill stick to my word that Lee was worshipped by his men I don't think Grant ever achieved that status their is also an incident right after the last charge at Cold Harbour on the 3rd when Grant refused an armistice to retrieve the wounded for two days many died because of this and it did not sit well with the men or some of his staff.Didn't Grant also lead men in to battle at Belmont, Missouri , Champion Hill, Vicksburg , Ft. Donaldson and Henry? I might of let off a few other battles.
Grants men fought hard and well during the battles of the Overland Campaign. They suffered heavy loss's but in the end the prevailed.
It would be interesting find out how Grants men viewed him we know 76% of the army voted republican in the 1864 elections was that because they believed in what Grant was doing the sense that they could touch and feel victory in Nov 1864.
